These are a few things for Baby Hunter. This is a little friend of Kathy. He was born at 1 lbs 5 oz. Over the weekend, he contracted NEC, the same intestinal infection that Emma was unable to beat. He had the procedure to put a drain in his intestines. This is the same procedure that was being performed when Emma's heart stopped for the last time. I am fighting for little Hunter like you wouldn't believe. His little footprints have already left his mark on my heart.
I made a little blanket for him. I hope that he can at least lay on it if he can't be wrapped in it. I'm sure it will be quite a while before he can have things close to his skin. Micro-preemie's skin is so very delicate. You can actually see through it in the early days.
"Peanut" is the name of the elephant. I dug it out of some of EGF's things and thought it was so appropriately named for the little peanut that Hunter is. The journal is for Mom and Dad. I bought it a couple of weeks ago in the $1 bin at Michael's.
I tried a new applique stitch (for me) per Amy's encouraging. I did ok with it....could have been worse, could have been better. It's not as nice as Amy's strawberry for sure!
